What is the All of Us Research Program?

Creating the right health approaches and care for the right person is called precision medicine. Getting the right information to make that happen is the goal of the All of Us Research Program from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

To get there, we want to create the largest health database ever. By understanding people’s health, neighborhood, family, and lifestyle, researchers will have information to better understand health and disease. This information is essential to create a healthier future for generations to come.

What is the New York City Consortium?

NYC Consortium partners

The New York City Consortium is a partner of the All of Us Research Program. The Consortium includes Columbia University Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medicine, NYC Health + Hospitals Harlem and New York-Presbyterian. All of Us is part of the National Institutes of Health.

The All of Us New York City Consortium is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us database. Researchers can access this data to conduct studies.

This could help them see how different things, like environment, lifestyle, and genes, can impact health. This may help develop new medical treatments that are unique to each person.
